Our Services

The services provided by PromoTXT, ATS Mobile and Purplegator, we can provide a comprehensive mobile marketing strategy so you can get your message in front of your target audience in multiple digital formats.

Text Interactive

Consumers send your keyword to our shortcode and immediately get a text message reply. It’s the best way to build your mobile opt-in database.

Text Broadcast

Once you have an opt-in list, you are ready to send your broadcast SMS messages to those consumers. Text broadcasts are what will make your business grow.

Text Vote

Have your audience vote by text message and get the results immediately. Great for audience participation!

Text Sweepstakes

People love winning prizes and that’s precisely why sweepstakes by text message work so well. Contests are the single best way to grow your database and encourage your customers.

Web Widget

An interactive SMS message isn’t the only way to get a legitimate opt-in. Put our web widget on your website and consumers will opt-in and go right into your database.

Ringless Voicemail

Don’t interrupt your consumers’ day. Leave a voicemail on their phone without ever ringing the phone. Coupled with text messaging, it’s a great way to increase frequency.

International Texting

We can send text messages virtually anywhere in the world. Contact us and we’ll set up a program to allow for international text messaging.

Text to Landline

You don’t know what you are missing! People are texting your business landline today and those leads are going nowhere. We’ll text-enable your business landline phone.

Mobile Marketing Agency

We provide great text message marketing, but it’s not all we are capable of. Our parent company, ATS Mobile does everything mobile and digital from social and digital advertisements to app and web development.

MMS Picture Messaging

You’re not just limited to 160 character SMS messages. We can also send pictures, videos or voice files to your opt-in database with MMS.


We have a long history in telephone services. Our parent company, Advanced Telecom Services, was founded in 1989. ATS started as an IVR, Interactive Voice Response, provider. We then developed two of the top ringtone sites in the United States which we sold in 2005 so we could dedicate our efforts into the newly developing field of mobile and text message marketing. Since then we have transitioned into a full service mobile first marketing agency.

Today our portfolio includes developing apps for huge media partners such as The Golf Channel, Comcast and Cititrends. Our portfolio also includes services in mobile apps, video and custom QR codes, as well as responsive, mobile friendly websites.
